Over the mountains, across the waves: Creativity-driven science to control tissues organization.

Tiziano Serra, AO Research Institute Davos, Switzerland

May 6, 2022 – 7pm

What to expect: An overview on biofabrication technologies and organ-on-a-chip; while the main part will be devoted to sound-induced morphogenesis, which is:

Using sound to do science, to use creativity to control tissue fabrication.
